Have you ever wondered what pioneers wore when they traveled West?
The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center (NHTIC) will present a program, “Everything you wanted to know about pioneer clothing but were afraid to ask." The program will take place on Feb. 23, at 11 a.m. The one-hour program is free and open to everyone.
Two living historians will focus on pioneer clothing from the early 1800s through 1880, and will discuss both inner and outer wear, as well as fabric styles.
For more information about the demonstration, contact Jason Vlcan at the NHTIC, (307) 261-7783.
